OLD FORESTER BIRTHDAY BOURBON
With a rich fruit and spice character, the 2O1O expression of Old Forester’s vintage-dated Birthday Bourbon is now available. Released annually in honor of George Garvin Brown, the founder of Louisville-based Brown-Forman and Old Forester, this year’s release is crafted from a 72 barrel batch that was put into barrels on October 24, 1997. Unlike the standard Old Forester, which is a batch of whisky from several different years, Birthday Bourbon is vintage-dated – hand-selected from one specific day of production. Its unique decanter style glass bottle is a throwback to the late 18OOs. Bottled at 95 proof, suggested retail is $49.99. Available from Horizon Beverage Company.
